Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
I've been trying to set some up and found out that I can only have sub domains as addresses that forward to places in the existing website. So sub.website.com forwards to website.com/sub. <Snip>
Did I have a wrong understanding of sub domains?
<Mod Add>What is the "common or accepted understanding" of how a "sub domain" is set up, how sub domains operate, etc.</Add>
<Mod Note: Please, no contract terms and let's try to sort this out with out "host identifying specifics". Thanks.>

[edit reason] Sorry, there are limits on soliciting legal opinions. See Charter. [/edit]
I'm still not clear- if someone types sub.example.com, they are redirected to example.com/sub (that's what they see in their address bar), or they still see sub.example.com and your content is located at example.com/sub (which is the way it should be)? If all it is is a redirect, then yes, I would say that's misrepresentation. That would be unlimited redirecting, not unlimited subdomains.
